The Bravo mogul confessed he was surprised by Ben’s request for another dad instead of a mother.
“I was surprised when he said, ‘I want another dad,'” Cohen explained. “I was like, ‘Isn’t that interesting that he knew that it would be another dad?’ and that he didn’t say, ‘I want a mom. I want you to get a mom.'”
According to the television personality, his toddler is aware that not every family looks the same.
“He knows that some kids have one dad, some kids have two dads, some kids have two moms. Some kids have a mom and a dad,” he continued. “He knows the whole spectrum.”
